Flood and Drought

About the project

Flood and Drought is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool and the Staffordshire Record Office, involving two PhD research students, Alice and Helen.

Helen is researching water management and flooding between c.1550 and 1750, including both routine management or flood prevention and response to disasters when they occur.

Alice is looking at understanding the response to drought and how this has changed over time, using a variety of archive sources and using Staffordshire as a case study to research public understanding and perception of drought, in the past and today.

Drought questionnaire

The questionnaire below will allow Alice to form an initial assessment of understanding of drought and will inform further research and interviews. We would be very grateful if you could fill in the questionnaire. Don’t worry about your answers being ‘right’ or not, we are interested in your initial response to these questions.

There are two versions of the questionnaire here; a word document version that you can fill in on the computer and return by emailing it to Alice on alice.harvey-fishenden@liverpool.ac.uk or a PDF which you can print off to fill in and either return to the Staffordshire Record Office in person, or scan and return by email.
